Arthroscopic Ankle Ligament Repair for Instability

Ankle instability is a chronic condition characterized by a recurrent slipping of the outer side of the ankle and usually results from repeated ankle sprains. Ankle instability surgery is performed to treat an unstable ankle and involves the repair or replacement of a torn or stretched ligament. Dr. Curry will discuss these options with you and suggest the best possible option to suite your individual requirements.

 

Arthroscopic Ankle Fusions

An ankle fusion is a surgical procedure to treat persistent ankle pain and disability caused by progressive destruction of the cartilage that lines the joint surfaces. The procedure involves removal of the remaining cartilage and fusion of the bones to improve stability and reduce pain. Arthroscopic ankle fusion is a minimally invasive technique associated with less complications and improved recovery time.

 

Arthroscopic Cartilage Repair

Cartilage repair is a surgical grafting procedure that replaces damaged cartilage with healthy cartilage from a non‐weight bearing joint. Cartilage repair is performed to correct joint deformities and restore the weight‐bearing capability of the affected joint. Cartilage repair is indicated in patients with articular cartilage damage in the knee to restore normal functioning of the joint. Cartilage repair can be performed using various techniques depending on your particular situation and your surgeon’s preference.
